Leaving 2018 MINI Sales Behind

As we mentioned a few weeks back, there’s a lot to look forward to for the brand. 2019 is set to be an exciting year for the brand, with the battery-driven MINI Electric set to make its first appearance towards the end of the year.

“Despite challenging market conditions, MINI is a brand which continues to enthuse and excite its customers. I am confident that the introduction of the hotly anticipated MINI Electric will generate even more enthusiasm,” said Peter Schwarzenbauer, BMW AG board member responsible for MINI.
